I also ask them why it's only 80 mW. They will recheck the number.

Wow I just realized that this had an Optical Innormal_smile%20.gif

 

This may just be the portable Dac/Amp to utilize the excellent transport of the AK100.......and take the AK100 into the next level. Been looking for a portable Dac with an Optical In for a while.

 

Very excited about this!

Optical out, optical in, analog in, and headphone out. The only thing that missing is analog out. etysmile.gif

I didn't jump on the DD Socket 1 when it first arrived and I missed the limited edition 12V models too. However with this coming, I'm perhaps happy that I saved my pennies... This may give the Centrance device good competition...

I have my Go-Dap X (MUSES 8920) then upgrade to LME49860 with 10Ω output impedance. Bought DD Socket 1 (MUSES 02) and 5 days later they announced limited edition. Get limited edition and a month later they announced Go-Dap X2.

 

Ok, guess what I'm going to do next. biggrin.gif

 

Meet my VentureCraft family.

 Right now, I preferred LE with the national but while travelling LE with C5 is more convenient. X now is only used for PC DAC but I think that when I get X2, I'll be using it on the go.

OpAmp rolling spec.
- Must be DIP dual OpAmp
- SOIC dual OpAmp is compatible but require SOIC-DIP conversion.

Input voltage will be ±9V.
Sorry to burst your bubble. Confirmed just 3 mins ago, SounDroid Typhoon name stays. Advertising, media, etc too widespread already.

Time to change your OP subject name again ;-).

Subbed.

This is cheering me up from wishing I had reordered the Hifi-M8.

 

Though, I'd pay extra to not have all the branding all over the device.

 

Cannot wait to learn more about the sound signature.

 

Wonder how it will sound on something like HE-400 or Fidelio X1.

Some update from VentureCraft.

  • The default opamp will be switched from OP275 to LME49860.
  • Outer finished will be hair-line black semi-gross in stead of matte black.

Yes I just got that email and was about to update it.

I actually wrote an email to them requesting for a dedicated amp for the DD socket 1 users. I still believe having a dedicated headphone amplifier in their product line is a logical thing to do due to the DD socket 1. As a happy DD socket 1 user I really do not see the benefit of going to the SounDroid simply because of its OI. I would love to see a dedicated amp from them using the same opamp they used for their DD socket 1 without the extra things which adds to the cost like apple licensing, DAC board and need for a firmware updates in future.

Dedicate amp should be awesome but one thing that I like about X or Typhoon is the portability. It's easily fit in my pocket. DD + C5 is a bit too big for my jean. Need to put that in my sweatshirt pocket. I think the only concern to them for making dedicate amp is competition from other companies. There are many amps out their.
